Investigate Votergate (2004)
It is a relatively short piece with historical relevance to voting irregularities in the 2004 presidential election, and peripherally, the 2000 presidential election. A historical reminder that electronic voting without a paper trail can pose problems and needs objective oversight.

A democratic government involves public participation. Many residents in Ohio experienced problems voting, which should be reported and investigated. You might feel differently if your ballot got tossed by the wayside or miscalculated in a Diebold voting machine...Now that is a waste of time, isn't it!
It is every citizens responsibility to make sure checks and balances are in place to make sure our voices are heard and that everyone gets fair representation. If we sit back and do nothing or say nothing, our country is in danger of getting taken over by corrupt politicians. Oops, too late.
Voting irregularitues have been under-reported by the mainstream news, but Democracy Now has been doing a great job of shedding some light on the subject:

Extremist Conspiracy Theories & Paranoiac Ravings!
An utter waste of time to watch, regardless of where you are in the political spectrum. In essence, the ultra far left's attempt to plant the seeds of heresay, and utter lunacy. I voted for Kerry, but this "film" did zero to convince me Bush did not win! An absolute waste of time!
